LighterLife Recipe: Better Burgers

Nutrition facts: 174 calories

1 small onion, grated
250g borlotti beans
250g extra lean beef mince
1 heaped tsp wholegrain mustard
Dash of Worcestershire sauce

2 tomatoes
 2 spring onions, chopped
2 chillies, chopped (optional)
1 small bunch coriander, chopped

To serve: Your choice of gherkins, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and onions.

Roughly mash together the grated onion and borlotti beans, add in the mince, mustard and Worcestershire sauce, mix together thoroughly and season. Use your hands to squidge everything together.

Divide the mixture into four equal balls and shape each one into a burger, compressing the ingredients together as much as possible so the burgers don’t break up when you cook them. Cover in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for 20 mins before cooking on a hot barbeque or grill for about 5 mins on each side.

While the burgers are resting, make the salsa by mixing the ingredients together.
